A fifth man is due in court today after been charged with the murder of 33-year-old Raja Ali.

Jordon Archambie, 19, of an unconfirmed address, will appear in custody at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court after being arrested and charged with the murder of Mr Ali yesterday.

The 33-year-old was stabbed to death last month. Four other men, including two from Dagenham, have already been charged with his murder.

Zakar Yunas, 21, appeared in custody at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Saturday and will next appear at the Old Bailey tomorrow.

Three other men have been remanded to the Old Bailey and await their first hearing on Monday, December 19.

They are Abubaker Omar-Bana, 26, of Rochford Close, East Ham; Mussa Jalo, 21, of Norfolk Road, Dagenham; and Daniel Paul Welch, 33 of Winstead Gardens, Dagenham.

Four other men were arrested and bailed to return on dates in mid and late November, pending further enquiries.
